(AP) - The power went off
minutes before a man was sched-
uled to die in the electric chair,
forcing Georgia's attorney general
to leave the prison with his cellu-
lar phone to leam the execution
was stayed. Darrell Gene Devier
had been scheduled to die at 7
p.m. Monday. His head and one
leg were already shaved when
storms cut power to the prison
about 6:15 p.m. A prison genera-
tor kicked in, but at 6:35 p.m it
overheated and cut off for about
20 minutes. That shut down the
prison phones.

(AP) - With the threat of the
deadly Ebola virus looming over
the capital of 6 million, doctors
and nurses in Kinshasa Zaire cre-
ated a hospital isolation ward
Tuesday for the city's first possible
carriers. Small green rooms with
floral curtains were sectioned off
at Kinshasa's Ngaliema Hospital
to hold a total of 20 people, and
health workers in the isolation
ward will have to stay there, too.
Officials have been struggling to
contain the virus to the region
surrounding Kikwit, a city of
600,000 where the outbreak be-
gan in March, killing 77 people
as of Monday. There is no vaccine
or cure for Ebola, which is spread
through bodily fluids and kills 80
percent of those who contract it.

(Top) Around 2,000 graduates attended the May 6th commencement.
(Middle left and right) Some had balloons, while some carried signs
and various other novelties. (Bottom) Graduates sat with their
departments which were designated by purple and gold signs.
They did it. On May 6th. graduating students
dressed in their caps and gowns, marched into
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, turned their tassels,
tossed their caps in the air, said good-bye to
undergraduate course work and said hello to jobs
or graduate schools. They became East Caro-
lina alumni.
Close to 18,000 people, approximately 2,000
graduates and 16,000 parents, grandparents and
friends attended the spring commencement cer-
emony.
"A lot of times people don't realize com-
mencement draws the second largest audience
to East Carolina - second only to football said
Claiborne C. Rowe, director of disability support
services and commencement.
Rowe said that about 800 advanced degree
students were present, 72 medical school gradu-
ates and three University Awards recipients were
present.
The speaker of the day was John Allison,
the chief executive officer of Branch Banking &
Trust (BB&T) located in Wilson, NC.
Rowe said that the speaker's message
reached students, was inspirational and encour-
aged students to contribute to society.
"I heard students say that it was a very good
delivery Rowe said.
Allison received an honorary doctorate of
letters from the university during the ceremony.
Rowe said that the chancellor selects the
commencement day speaker.
"The speaker for commencement is chosen
in the chancellor's office Rowe said. "The chan-
cellor and his staff make that type of selection
Rowe said that a lot of time, planning and
people is done to make sure that the commence-
ment ceremony will run smoothly.
"We have a commencement committee here
at East Carolina Rowe said. "There are 17
people on the committee to advise and help me
in making the preparations for each commence-
ment. We do two commencements per year. We
do one in December for the summer school and
fall graduates, then we do a spring commence-
ment for the spring graduates. Each of the 17
people have a functional area that contributes
towards the commencement program
Some of the areas that these people work
with are the student marshals, the faculty mar-
shals, traffic control, student line and security.
"The biggest responsibility we have is ad-
vising students about commencement Rowe
said.
In a letter mailed to all graduating stu-
dents on March 23, students were given such
instructions as when and how to purchase cap
and gowns, what time to arrive for the cer-
emony, what to do if it rains and when to ex-
pect to receive their diplomas.
Rowe said that the committee also has a
responsibility to meet any special needs people
may have.
"Lots of people try to compare commence-
ment to a football game as far as people, but
there's really a difference Rowe said. "A lot of
elderly people, grandmothers and grandfathers
who may have physical limitations - they come
to commencement, but they don't necessarily
go to ball games
Starting with last December's ceremony,
faculty members line up by departments and
professional schools and march in and sit with
the graduates from their departments.
During the ceremony, students tossed a
beach ball, and at one point, tossed around a
beach ball shaped like a football. Also, stu-
dents decorated their caps with balloons or
announcements that they are looking for a job.
Still, others held up banners saying, "Thanks
Mom and Dad
"They are always festive. We expect that
Rowe said. "I have attended a number of other
schools that are comparable in size, larger
schools and our students maintain a much
higher standard of behavior than you see at
other schools
Rowe said that most people want their
graduation day be special.
"I think that an event like this deserves
and demands some type of politeness Rowe
said. "It says something about the university
Flood causes computer delays
Joyner systems
operational
despite water
damage
Andi Powell Phillips
Staff Writer
While students were sweating it
out over exams at the end of the
spring semester, the staff of Joyner
Library was sloshing around in a
couple feet of water trying to rescue
some valuable computer equipment
form a flooded basement room. The
flooding occurred on the morning of
April 28.
The flooding was due to insuffi-
cient sealing around some pipes that
run vertically through the basement
of Joyner, said Mr. Gene Williams, uni-
versity archivist for ECU. The open-
ings around the pipes were exposed
due to the construction of the new
library wing going on behind Joyner
and when a heavy rain began, water
poured into the basement room.
"As soon as the construction
company found out what had hap-
pened, they took preventative mea-
sures to keep it from happening
again Williams said. "They checked
all of the pipes and filled them in with
cement
Fortunately, the library staff had
arrived at work and were able to
move quickly to remove the comput-
ers and the wiring that connected
them to the rest of the computer sys-
tems before any serious damage oc-
curred.
"In the flood, three major pieces
of equipment were affected by the
water. At the time they were located
in a basement room, but they were
scheduled to be moved to the west-
end of the building Williams said
"Unfortunately, the water came be-
fore the move got underway
The three pieces of equipment
damaged were the RS6000 model
340, the RS6000 97-B, part of the
new on-line catalog and the Seattle
Server.
"The Seattle Server, which is a
file server that controls all of the non-
Macintosh public work stations and
CD-ROM servers in the reference sec-
tion, sustained the most damage, but
overall we got off lightly Williams
said.
According to Anne Carol Stocks,
a computing support technician for
Joyner Library and part of the team
that has been working on repairing
the damaged computers and getting
the systems back to normal, the Se-
attle Server is the only one of the
three pieces of equipment damaged
that is not yet fully operational.
"Everything is back up, except
for the public work stations Stocks
said. "That server was damaged, but
we will hopefully have it back up by
the end of this week
The flooding should not seri-
ously affect students' use of the li-
brary and library computer systems,
Williams said.
"We're up and running he said,
"Someone coming into the library
today, unaware of the flood, would
probably never know there had been
any problem. The bottom line is that,
except for a few bugs on the network
CD-ROMs, things are working. If any
problems develop, notes will be
posted to inform the students
Manhole blamed
for accident
Tambra Zion
News Editor
An accident around 3 p.m. Thurs-
day on 10th Street caused severe dam-
age and injured two.
Franz Erickson Propst, 21, was
driving his truck eastbound on 10th
Street when he hit an uncovered man-
hole. The vehicle's front and rear left
tires hit the hole, bursting the tires,
bending the rims and throwing two
passengers from the back of the truck,
police reports stated.
"I didn't know what had happened
until about 10 minutes later when I went
to look Propst said. "We were driving
when I hit it It pulled the truck left
and across the median and I ended up
landing on the brick wall in front of
Umstead
Propst's twin brother Ian received
minor injuries and was transported to
Pitt Memorial Hospital with his friend
Kevin Emory who remains in intensive
care.
"Kevin is in intensive care and they
say he could be in there for two
months Franz said.
Director of Greenville's water re-
source department Ronald Elks said the
reason for the manhole being uncovered
is still unclear.
"We had some crews that were
working on the ECU campus that day
Elks said. "But we have not completed
our investigation of that at this time
Propst would not comment as to
whether any charges will be filed. The
Propst brothers are ECU cheerleaders
and were on their way to the bank when
the accident occurred. Emory is not a
student at ECU.

Some described her as energetic,
witty, pristine or generous, but all
called her the epitome of elegance and
beauty. She was a true lady.
She graced the halls of English
department and filled the rooms of
the English Annex with laughter and
warmth. To her students she was a
tough cookie, but one with many valu-
able lessons. To her friends and col-
leagues, she was stalwart in the eye
of the storm.
Last Monday, Dr. Bertie Edwards
Fearing died after a two-year battle
with cancer. To many, her death was
a surprise - she had just been her
office grading internships several
days before. Despite Fearing's struggle
with the disease, she never slowed
down, always setting an example for
those around her.
Her friends, family, students and
colleagues gathered last Thursday in
General Classroom Building for a
memorial service. At Fearing's re-
quest, the memorial tributes were lim-
ited to women only, they could last
no longer than two minutes and had
to be funny - and they were.
Dr. Jo Allen, an English depart-
ment professor and one of Fearing's
closest friends, reminisced of their
first meeting when Fearing taught
Allen advanced writing for business
and industry. The blond bombshell
who shocked Allen on that summer
morning would later become her men-
tor, her adviser, her colleague, and
most of all, her friend.
Dr. Sherry Southard, another of
Fearing's English department cowork-
ers, joked of Fearing bellowing down
the halls of GC and declaring to all in
the English department that she
needed ice for her ritual morning
Coke.

The East Carolinian
Students explore
plane wreckage
Toby Russ
Staff Writer
A field school for the maritime
history and nautical archaeology de-
partment at ECU won the 1994 West-
ern Association of Summer Sessions
Award. Dr. Bradley A Rodgers, visit-
ing assistant professor of history at
ECU, directed the class that included
students from ECU and the University
of Hawaii at Manoa.
The six-week school focused on
the wreckage of a U.S. Navy PBY-5A
seaplane that lay in the waters off
Kaneohe Marine Base, Oahu. The plane
was destroyed by Japanese bombers the
same day of the attack on Pearl Har-
bor, located directly south of Kaneohe
on the opposite side of Oahu.
Six graduate students from ECU
served as crew chiefs for the dives down
to the wreckage. Their primary pur-
pose was to map and photograph the
site, which was founded by Navy divers
only six years ago.
The ECU students also worked on
the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor after
the school at Kaneohe.
"Only about 40 other divers have
been down to look at the Arizona, so
that was a real big honor for us said
Wendy Coble, a graduate student in
the maritime history and nautical ar-
chaeology department
Jim Adams of the National Park
Service took video footage and still
photography of the site. None of the
work disturbed the wreckage site and
no excavating was done.
One of the objectives of the study
was to find out how the plane reached
its current position.
"We believe the plane was one of
four ready to fly that day Coble said.
The most popular theory is that
the plane was anchored in the bay
when the Japanese attacked. The crew
were on board preparing to fly recon-
naissance missions to spot the Japa-
nese fleet, but the Japanese ap-
proached the island undetected and hit
Kaneohe minutes before Pearl Harbor.
"We found what we think are bul-
let holes near the gas tank, and it ap-
pears to have been bumed, so we think
that it was shot in the gas tank, burned
and sank. But we think everyone had
time to get off before it sank Coble
said.
Coble's theory is supported by a
man who was at Kaneohe that day.
Dallas Jones, a retired Chief Warrant
Officer in the Navy, was asleep in the
barracks and was awakened by gun-
fire.
"I thought, boy they're getting
pretty realistic this morning Jones
said, referring to the drills the Army
had been doing in preparation for war.
Jones remembers the four planes
anchored in the bay that day.
"I feel sure that was one of the
planes that was anchored out that
morning he said. "I remember see-
ing one on fire out there
Jones, who was 18 at the time, was
the forward gunner on a PBY and went
on to earn the Distinguished Flying
Cross and the Russian Order of Glory
Third Class for his role in sinking a
German submarine in the North Sea.
Thirty-three of the 36 PBYs sta-
tioned at Kaneohe were destroyed that
day.
"The only three left flying were
on patrol that morning Jones said.
The PBY was used mostly to scout
for approaching enemies because of its
ability to fly long distances. The plane
could fly up to 600 miles without hav-
ing to refuel.
"That plane was the Model-T of
aviation Jones said. "It was a depend-
able old plane; slow and clumsy, but it
got the job done
The PBY could hold up to 1,100
gallons of water and could skim the
surface of a lake to pick up over 800
gallons in 15 to 20 seconds. After the
war, they were used to fight forest fires.
JJTIVVJT from page 1
gram, worked with Fearing as an as-
sociate editor of the North Carolina
Literary Review. Through the long
hours Ashford and Fearing spent la-
boring over the review, there were
many memories and many stories to
be told. Ashford focused on Fearing's
calm presence during the haste and
confusion of production time.
"And Bertie, always Bertie -

fice, calmly concentrating on her com-

Fearing's name as a metaphor. Those
who worked with Fearing knew of her
academic diligence and understood
the fear of not meeting her standards,
and fearing Fearing. But despite
Whaley's comical tribute, she never
lost sight of Fearing's true self, her
elegance and beauty.
Following the memorial service,
at Fearing's request, her friends, fam-
ily, students and colleagues gathered
around the English Annex for a Mardi
Gras-style party. The group, clad in
Mardi Gras beads, shared "Bertie" sto-
ries while enjoying the tunes of a jazz
band from New Bern. A pig and all
the fixings were supplied by B's Bar-
becue.
Her many projects will be carried
out by her friend and coworker John
Patterson, an adjunct English depart-
ment faculty member who is currently
a communication professor. Patterson
worked with Fearing and Ashford as
associate editors of the North Caro-
lina Literary Review.
Besides completing Fearing's
novels and articles, Patterson is work-
ing to preserve a garden outside of
Fearing's office. The garden will soon
be named the Bertie Edwards Fear-
ing Garden. A plaque will be placed
on a tree outside the office window.
Several years ago Sue Garris,
who operates the greenhouse at the
garden, gave Fearing a cat named
Burlington. The stray cat. one of many
who were born around the garden,
would later become Burlington Jellicle
Fearing, esq. after the T.S. Eliot book
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
Fearing's love of felines led to one of
her projects, a book entitled The Cat's
Meow: North Carolina Cats and their
Writers, which Patterson intends to
finish.
"She was a dynamic teacher, lec-
turer, adviser, mentor Patterson said.
"She was one of the best liked people
I've ever known. She had a positive
influence on hundreds of East Caro-
lina University students. She was the
best editor I've ever known
Other projects which Patterson
will work on include updating
Fearing's 1972 master's thesis "The
Dominant Woman in Jacobean Trag-
edy one of the first feminist criticism
pieces, an article of pseudonyms of
writers and an article "NC Women in
the Civil War" for the North Carolina
Literary Review.
Patterson said he wants to have
the English Annex renamed Fearing
malic-ins Hnytime
Hall, but that project must be ap-
proved by the Board of Trustees. At
Fearing's request, a magnolia tree was
placed outside of the annex in
memory of Fearing.
In addition to her mother Ida
Edwards, all of Fearing's immediate
family reside in the Greenville area.
Her husband Woody is a pharmacist
in Greenville. Inger Fearing Harrison,
her oldest daughter, of Grifton, is a
graduate of ECU and is a technical
communicator with Glaxo-Wellcome
in Greenville. Sheri, her other daugh-
ter, a graduate of UNC-W, is currently
seeking her real estate license.
In lieu of flowers, memorial con-
tributions can be sent to the English
department to establish a scholarship
in Fearing's name.

Our View

The News and
Observer
continues to seek
ammunition
against ECU, so
why do we keep
giving it to them?
Do yourselves a
favor and tell
your partying
buddies that
having a party
school rep isn't
the way to land
a job.
Nearly 18,000 piled into Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium several
weeks ago to witness the pomp and circumstance of ECU's 86th
commencement. There were parents, grandparents, perhaps
great-grandparents, siblings, significant others and friends of
those who had devoted some four or five years of their lives to
better their education. What these people saw was not the gran-
deur associated with graduation, but what appeared to be a
circus.
While speaker John A. Allison, IV delivered the commence-
ment address, the group of graduates (over 2,100) tossed around
a beach ball, an oversized football, a rubber chicken and con-
fetti. The activities eventually got so out of hand that a gradu-
ation official was forced to intervene and confiscate the "toys
The day's events would not have been so detrimental to the
university's reputation had an article not appeared in the News
and Observer the following day. Despite the fact that the N&O
is trying desperately to generate an audience in western NC
and move away from the eastern portion of the state, their
editors felt it was necessary to not only mention the addition of
"party to the pomp and pageantry" of the graduation exercises,
but to write an entire sidebar devoted to ECU. Although the
editors at the N&O only devoted about three inches (buried
within the paper, some five days after the event) to the success
of the Shared Visions campaign, they did believe they should
dedicate at least 15 inches of the section's front page to the
spectacle of the graduation exercises.
Just beside the ECU story, was a very well designed graphic
picturing graduation regalia for each of the levels of education.
The graphic featured the university colors for each of the tri-
angle schools, as well as Harvard, Princeton and Yale, but one
university's colors were missing- ECU's. But hey, they devoted
an entire sidebar to our graduation.
Whether the N&O would have dedicated such space to ECU
had the graduation exercises been aristocratic and rich in tradi-
tion, as other university's exercises must be, remains to be seen,
but we do not have to encourage the criticism that we are con-
tinuing to receive. Granted, graduation is a time for celebra-
tion, but that's what parties are for. Do these graduates actu-
ally think their parents are proud when they see their sons and
daughters tossing around a beach ball and paying no attention
to the speaker?
After spending years in the classroom taking countless
exams and writing what seemed like endless papers, we all want
to pop a bottle of bubbly and toast our classmates, but what we
need to remember is that we remain under the watchful eye.
The public may not be Big Brother, but it does seem to thrive
on our mistakes. (Remember the fight at the Syracuse game, or
perhaps the brawl at the NC State game some decade ago?).
This institution, which may seem like all fun and games to some,
will be the same institution on our resume when we go seeking
a job. Things won't be so fun when no one takes ECU seriously.
The beach balls, a rubber chicken and confetti would not
have been so bad, but what solidified the public's (false) image
of our university was a comment made, on the record, by one of
our very own newly commenced students. The N&O jumped on
the opportunity to use a pull quote of this student's comment
The student, a marketing major, had decorated his rr. jrtarboard
using his own unique idea. He didn't say "Thanks Mom and
Dad or "ECU 1 instead he decorated the top of his hat
with beer caps.
Well, that's not so bad, in fact it is original, but the gradu-
ate went on to tell the reporter the caps represented "all the
different brands of beer that he drank, one for each class that
he took while here (Did he start saving beer caps as a fresh-
man? Or did he stock up the week before graduation?) His quote
was not the only one found in the story, but it was the most
memorable of the quotes from the story, therefore it took top
billing as the pull-quote. If nothing else in a story is read, people
pay attention to pull quotes. They are a quick way to determine
what a story is about and if it may be worth reading. Is this the
voice we want to represent our student body? It's doubtful.
So ECU has put another nail in the coffin in which we are
burying ourselves. With comments like these made by our very
own students and alumni, the media, namely the N&O, will
never have to seek critics to support their stories.

Get a sweetheart, not a pet
Bored? Lonely? Thinking of get-
ting a cute little puppy or kitten to
keep you company? Well don't! Don't
get a pet unless you are ready and
willing to take all the responsibilities
that go along with it! I say this be-
cause, as is the case every summer
here in Greenville, there is an abun-
dance of stray animals around the
ECU campus. Many students simply
turn their pets out on the street when
they head home for the summer, or
when the animal becomes too much
trouble, or when their landlords
threaten to evict them for having a
pet in a place where they knew pets
were not allowed.
There is no excuse for this. At
the very least a pet owner should turn
their animal over to the humane soci-
ety if they are not willing to find a
home for it When these domesticated
animals are let loose they not only face
attack from other animals, but also
they face starvation and being run-
over by cars, not to mention the big-
gest threat of all, people! Unfortu-
nately there are a lot of sick people in
the world who get a kick out of hurt-
ing animals just for fun. Dogs and cats
who have learned to trust people are
particularly susceptible to them.
I think the reason so many stu-
dents turn their pets out this way is
that they didn't really stop to think
what they were getting into when they
saw little Fido in the pet store win-
dow. They find themselves stuck with
an unruly animal they don't have the

time or the inclination to train. So,
before you take the leap, think about
the following: If you are a poor col-
lege student who tends to run out of
money at the end of the month and
has to live on Oodles of Noodles (6
for $1) for a week, how will you af-
ford to buy pet food? And, if you live
in a small apartment consider that
even a very small puppy or kitten can
make your place (and your clothes and
you) smell like the elephant habitat
at a zoo. There is also the matter of
time.
Animals, especially young ani-
mals, need a lot of attention. I know
few college students who can find the
time to do their laundry more then
once every three weeks, how will you
find time to walk a dog three times a
day? Cats are a little less demanding
when it comes to time. You can leave
a cat alone all day long and it will
happily content itself, shredding your
furniture into pieces. The issue of
property damage is also important to
remember when thinking of taking an
animal into your home. My first room-
mate had a puppy that ate the corner
of her window sill. My family had a
St Bernard that chewed the wind-
shield wipers off my car. And we won't
even talk about what a cat in heat can
do to your carpet The point being that
animals can destroy everything you
own if they are not properly trained
and you (as mentioned earlier) prob-
ably do not have time to properly train
one.
Now, if you've heard all this, you
know all of the pitfalls of being a pet
parent and you still want one good!
You are a true animal lover and I'm
sure you will take care of whatever
lucky animal gets you for an owner.
Otherwise, if you don't think you're
ready for that kind of responsibility but
you're still bored and lonely, get a boy-
friend or a girlfriend. They're easier to
train (sometimes) and they don't trash
your personal property (usually.)
By the way. if there is a true ani-
mal lover out there in the market for a
great pet there is a beautiful male
tabby cat that has been hanging
around in the parking lot of Darryl's
Restaurant who needs a good home. I
would take him home, but 1 already
have a very territorial cat who is prob-
ably home shredding my couch as we
speak
What's the purpose of 1065?
I have a gripe that I'm sure will
receive an abundance of support
across campus. Why do students have
to pass Math 1065 in order to go out
into the real world? Don't bother send-
ing in your responses, because noth-
ing anyone says can convince me that
Math 1065 serves a purpose.
And yes, I am among the thou-
sands who have had difficulties. I
admit my mathematical inclinations
are constantly on the decline, but this
does not make me a reject to society.
I still pay taxes. I've done volunteer
work, I attend church, I am incred-
ibly kind to animals, I am gracious to
my elders and I definitely keep
McDonald's in business. All this with-
out the math that is taught in 1065.
That's right, I'm not in favor of
completely abolishing math, but let's
only keep what we need to survive:
addition, subtraction, multiplication,
division, etc. Let's teach our eager
scholars how to balance a checkbook,
obtain a smart loan at low interest
rates, buy a house, establish a budget
and pay bills on time. I don't recall
learning a bii of that in the required
curriculum a this university. And I
could use some help in the loan de-
partment.
Instead, students are required to
complete a math lab if they're really
mathematically challenged and an al-

gebra course. Someone in the admin-
istration obviously came up with this
as a nifty way to get a lot of extra
money from hard-working parents and
students. It's a conspiracy, I tell you!
And have you heard about what
ECU offers if you have math anxiety?
Someone came up with a brilliant
solution to this dilemma. Those stu-
dents suffering from anxietus mathus
get to attend a math class every day
for four hours. No chance of increas-
ing the old anxiety level with that one.
That's like taking a mouse and mak-
ing it live with a family of cats. No
tension there!
The nonsense involved in the cre-
ation of a math anxiety class is unbe-
lievable. Show me a person who took
that class, lived happily through it and
now has no hard feelings toward let-
ters and numbers combining and I'll
show you a drug-induced, brain-
washed sucker of the system. And
then 1 will show you the counselors
called in to reverse the condition im-
mediately following the final exam.
I realize math is here to stay.
That's fine with me. But let's give
adults some credit. I am speaking of
the 22-year-olds (25 26- and 27-year-
olds) who are ready to graduate from
college. They took their music appre-
ciation to leam about the cultured
world, they took their anthropology
to leam about the sharks' teeth at the
bottom of College Hill, and they took
their English Comp to leam to put a
verb after a noun and write a form
letter.
So great, they're graduates who
can hum Bach, dig in the dirt and
write postcards. Except they can't
keep track of their bank account They
can't shop with coupons and a calcu-
lator without being gone for a week.
And they certainly cannot ever invest
in a house, because the terms mort-
gage, equity loan , and economic
consultant are meaningless to them.
I know they're meaningless to me. But
that's right, I can recite the
Pythagorean Theorem upon request

Sandra Bullock
impresses in new
romantic comedy
Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
While watching the ECU presenta-
tion of Twelfth Night, I could not help
but marvel at the fact that seven years
ago the playbill could have had the name
Sandra Bullock behind 3 character name
Not so long ago Sandra Bullock was an
aspiring thespian within the hallowed
halls of ECU buildings. Now she is one
of the most sought- after females in Hol-
lywood
Bullock sped to the top of
Hollywood's A-list of top actresses last
year with the huge success of Speed. Her
first picture since Speed demonstrates
why she is one of the hottest young ac-
tresses in cinema. Her new film, While
Your Were Sleeping, showcases her tal-
ents and promises to be another success.
As testimony to her widespread
popularity and appeal, an Entertainment
Weekly piece talked of the female lead
for Batman Forever. Once Val Kilmer
replaced Michael Keaton for the lead, a
younger actress was sought "A Sandra
Bullock type
In While You Were Sleeping Bul-
lock plays a lonely toll booth attendant
for the el named Lucy, who dreams of
finding her prince charming to make all
her wishes come true. She has no mother
or father and dresses in old clothes to
work at her booth. The only feature miss-
ing from this Cinderella story is the
wicked stepmother.
Lucy finds her prince in Peter (Pe-
ter Gallagher), a young lawyer who rides
the el every day. Lucy finds him wonder-
fully handsome but cannot think of a way
to meet him. She knows that she and
Peter are destined for each other but she
does not know how to talk with him.
One day fate steps in the way. Peter
gets harassed by some young men on
Christmas day and falls off the platform
in front of a train. Lucy quickly pulls Peter
off the tracks then follows him to the
hospital where he lies in a coma. WTiile
waiting to hear about Peter's condition
Lucy meets his family and falls in love
with them. The family mistakenly thinks
Lucy is Peter's fiancee and thus adopts
her. Because of Lucy's lack of family, she
jubilantly embraces the warmth of Peter's
family.
Lucy eventually meets Peter's
brother Jack (Bill Pullman) and they
strike up a pleasant relationship. The two
generate mutual feelings of attraction but
Jack hides his emotion because of his
brother, and Lucy hides her feelings be-
cause she does not want to reveal the lie
she is living. Through several misadven-
tures the relationship between Jack and

Rock veteran
opens '95 season
at Walnut Creek
Warren Sumner
Staff Writer
Walnut Creek Amphitheatre has
become one of the premiere venues
for live music in North Carolina. It
brings to the state such big-name acts
as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers,
who opened the Creek's 1995 season.
Thousands of rock fans crammed
into the Amphitheatre, braving an
onslaught by the elements, to hear the
veteran performer deliver a two-hour
performance spanning all the periods
of his nearly-20-year career. The fans
who were seated on the lawn section
left after the show soaked to the bone,
but probably feeling a bit warm and
fuzzy after seeing the performance
that Petty and his band presented.
The Heartbreakers tore through
nearly 25 songs. Surprisingly, they
gave the new material from Wildflow-
ers, Petty's latest release, equal bill-
ing with his biggest hits. Despite miss-
ing the first five songs due to the
horrendous traffic jam heading into
Walnut Creek, I was happy to hear a
concert that combined the best of old
and new with neither falling short in
the manner it was performed. Petty
and his band, anchored by longtime
guitarist Mike Campbell and new
drummer Steve Ferrone, were on fire
that evening and seared through the
material.
As perhaps the only negative to
the show, Raleigh was pounded by
rain throughout the concert, but this
seemed not to deter any of the fans.
In appreciation of their fortitude,
Petty gave his thanks to the crowd
"in the back" and told them, laugh-
ingly, "I won't leave if you won't
I had heard rumors that Petty
was a bit aloof from his crowd and
was not the best of performers, but
there was no evidence of it that
evening. I found him to be quite per-
sonable and was impressed with his
ability to work the entire Walnut
Creek stage. He was obviously enjoy-
ing himself and set the crowd into
stitches when he said, "1 have heard
that a lot of people have heard I'm
into substance abuse. I want every-
one here to know I am completely
sober but I'm high as hell
Petty's astounding set included
something for any fan of his music.
The older material was well-presented
as the crowd screamed the choruses
of "Don't Do Me Like That "Free
Fallin" and "Even the Losers Be-

Leftover Salmon
Bridges to Bert
t
Kris Hoffler
Staff Writer
WTiat do you call a band that blends
Cajun, funk, bluegrass, reggae, zydeco,
rock, polka and blue cheese yodel mu-
sic? Leftover Salmon, Boulder,
; Colorado's latest musical export
; Leftover Salmon was bom when
; members of two popular Colorado bands
' merged. Players from The Salmon Heads,
� known for their crazy Cajun music, and
� Left Hand String Band, a progressive
� bluegrassnewgrass band, joined forces
to explore their more eclectic musical
styles. Playing a multitude of instruments
- mandolin, bass, fiddle, keyboards,
drums, banjo, flute and guitar - Left-
� over Salmon creates a sound all their
.own.
I Leftover Salmon calls what they do
T "Bridging the Bert which is a process
� where one bridges the gap between two
or more unrelated things. If Jesse Helms
were to take two hits of acid and dance
his flabby little legs off at a rave, that
would be considered Bridging the Bert
Wha exactly Bert has to do with this I
don't know. The phrase does make sense
in relation to what they do musically,
which is put together musical styles that
really have no buisness relating to each
other, but somehow they make it work.
Many of the songs on Bridges To
Bert have a distinctly Cajun feel: they
are bouncy and make good dance mu-
sic. The opening track, "Booboo is an
old Calypso tune popularized by Harry
Belafonte. They put a crazy little dance
twist to the song which makes it perfect
for debauchery-inspired dancing. A flute
solo in the middle really gives it a folk
feel. The lyrics, strangely enough, are
about an ugly clam.
"Whiskey before Breakfast" is a tra-
ditional Irish folk song that sounds much
like The Rogues, except you can under-
stand the lyrics in this one. This is a re-
ally good rendition complete with
accordian and some brilliant mandolin
work.
One of the strangest songs on this
release is "Just Before the Evening It is
a song that mixes the unlikely couple of
reggae and country It has the whiny,
twangy sounds of a country song mixed
with the head-bobbing and constant
rhythm of a reggae song. The lyrics are
concerned with waiting for the night to
come so it will be time to party. Not ex-
actly profound, but the mixture of the
music sounds shockingly different
Overall this is a solid release and I
expect to see much more from these guys.
They definitely have the talent With the
growing popularity of roots music I think
they will do well. Right now they are tour-
ing the country and trying to build up a
grass roots appeal. That's how Dave
Matthews got where he is now. If you
are into the Dead scene this would defi-
nitely be one to check out Sometimes
leftovers can be quite delicious.
Sea of Souls
Feed the Machinery
Brandon Waddell
Assistant Lifestyle Editor
In the past year or so, Virginia
Beach heavy metal sluggers Sea of
Souls apparently took their fair share
of valium prior to recording their sec-
ond CD, Feed the Machinery. When
I popped in the quartet's newest re-
lease. I listened to about 30 seconds
of the first cut. then took it out and
looked at it again; I seriously thought
someone at Trumpeter Records put
the wrong CD in the case.
The band's debut release. Titanic,
is about as hard and
true as heavy metal
music comes: its
sound is straightfor-
ward metal with a
dirty, grimy edge to
it. That one had song
titles such as "N-An-
ger"and"HERIONe"
and lyrics like "I'd
like to take a razor
blade and furiously
lick the edge until my
tongue looks like the
head of Medusa; but
I hate the taste of
blood It's no won-
der why Motley Crue
drummer Tommy Lee told MTV's Riki
Rachtman that he hasn't been able to
take the CD out of his stereo. Titanic
may have received a "thumbs up" from
the tattooed percussionist, but that
was then and this is now.
Since the release of Titanic,
surely coastal Virginia metal fans were
licking their chops with eager antici-
pation of the band's follow up. Well,
sorry folks, but the guys are into mel-
low stuff this go round. Apparently the
band is trying desperately to make a
change from metal to artsy, impres-
sionistic music. Maybe that's a bit
harsh to state. But the band's first CD
is so much different from the second,
it's hard to imagine that it's the same
band members
with the same
producer. The
band's music
went from what
would be experi-
enced at O'Rock's
on a good, hard
night to some-
thing heard (and
preferably forgot-
ten) on local ra-
dio station 103.7.
In particular,
the band uses
more soft sound-
ing melodies and
choruses and
sing almost happy songs on Feed the
Machinery. Many bands make
changes to their music when making
a new disc; perhaps to make the prod-
uct more commercially appealing, a
producer wants to make changes, or
the band simply wants to. This dras-
tic change that Sea of Souls has made
to their music so early in their careers
will attract new fans. But they will be
in serious jeopardy of losing the true
fans who have brought them from
being just another bar band to career
musician status.

Summertime has always had a
special feel for me. When I was a
kid, summer meant long, lazy, sticky
afternoons spent sprawled out on
the floor reading Hulk comics and
sipping on Cokes long since turned
warm by the time I finished them. It
meant playing too hard in the hot,
thick air and spending the next day
recovering from heat exhaustion. It
was all about frozen Kool-Aid on a
stick and smelling like a dog by sup-
per time.
Summer in Greeville has that
same feel. It's hot and humid and
there aren't too many people around.
Everybody kind of mellows out and
a general sense of laziness settles
over the city like a comfy blanket,
or perhaps a plague of locusts. It's a
good time to get that book read, or
to perfect your curve ball, or to have
long, languid, sweaty sex with a
beautiful stranger on a greasy
fouton. Hell, it's a good time for any-
thing that gets you smelling like a
dog by supper time.
I myself try to average one good
dog-smell a week, just to clean out
the pores and such.
So while we're all out there sip-
ping mint juleps on the veranda this
summer, let's keep a few things in
mind. People are still basically stu-
pid (oh. come on, you knew I'd get
around to it). Yes. people are stupid
and we should let them know it now
and then. And remember, trends and
fads are evil things that perpetuate
a sheep mentality in the stupid
among us.
So every time you see some
preppy chick wearing one of those
skin-tight t-shirts with a tiny star, kit-
ten, fish, flower or ringed planetoid
silk-screened on the front, laugh de-
risively at her. The same goes for oth-
erwise "normal" guys in those nutty-
Bobby Brady striped t-shirts. We
have to teach them somehow, and
trend-slaves are easily swayed by
overt criticism.
"Gee, maybe my brown Levi's
cords and anti-ecstacy rave shirt
aren't as cool as I thought" Death
to the evil co-opting of rave culture!
And while we're at it, let's
heckle all those 70s revival "roots
rock" bands out there. Pop music
hasn't been evil nearly long enough
for things to get so boring and safe
so quickly. Here's a clue on hew to
spot these purveyors of mediocrity:
if they have an underground rep, but
their lyrics don't deal with anything
you couldn't hear in a Jimmy Buffet
tune, let them have it!
Yes, I'm talking to you, Hootie
and the Blowfish! And you, Dave
Matthews Band! Decent musicians
you may be. but you're boring and
unoriginal, and I want nothing to do
with you! If you are truly the van-

While You Were Sleeping show-
cases Bullock's charm. She graces al-
most every minute of film, poignantly
expressing her loneliness while main-
taining the innocence that allows her
to hope for a prince. Bullock looks ef-
fectively mousy for most of the film. She
wears old bulky clothing which mirrors
her mood. But near the end Bullock
puts on a dress that makes her look
radiant Bullock will surely have many
more starring roles after the release of
this film. She possesses the subtle grace
and charming strength that made her
character in Speed so likable. She sur-
passes that charismatic performance in
While You Were Sleeping.
The rest of the cast especially Pull-

neighbor), matches Bullock's charm.
They effectively convey the deep car-
ing of their characters. I must share
that Peter's grandmother (Glynis

I know did l realize that Johns played
the mother in Mary Poppins. She has
not changed much in 30 years.
While You Were Sleeping moves
a bit slowly at times. The filmmakers
opted to have no distracting storylines.
With no subplot the main story tends
to drag slightly. A few scenes between
Lucy and Peter's family could have
been trimmed to streamline the film.
Another problem is that the huge emo-
tional payoff comes before the end of
the film. This makes the ending seem
a bit anti-climatic. Still one emotion-
ally charged scene near the end will
cause emotional turmoil in most view-
ers' hearts.
While You Were Sleeping tells a
charming fairy tale that will win over
the viewer. Knowing that Bullock can

makes her success that much more
wonderful.
On a scale of one to 10, While

tween their cheers for the Petty clas-
sics and the banshee-like screams at
the pouring rain, the crowd was also
bombarded with an impressive array
of new material.
"You Don't Know How it Feels
(To be Me)" sounded just like it does
on the radio. While a bit slower than
its recorded version, the just-released
"It's Good to be King" was also pretty
close to what the DJ's are spinning.
An acoustic set, apparently the
trend of the 90s concert, highlighted
the middle part of the show as "Wild-
flowers" was intermingled with the
soon-to-be-classic "Learning to Fly
After the acoustics were put away,
Campbell took the crowd back into
electric heaven with the searing gui-
tar riff of "Running Down a Dream

tion of "Into the Great Wide Open
which gave Campbell an outlet to
showcase his world-class slide playing.

of "American Girl" served as an incred-

accompaniment was another acoustic
number, a Neil Young cover played
through flashes of lightning and the
occasional rumble of thunder.
I expected to hear the complaints
and grumblings of those who endured
the wrath of the Raleigh skies on the
way back to my car. While I'm sure
there were quite a few sniffles and
sneezes for the crowd upon waking
up the next morning, I didn't hear any
complaints. Instead of talking about
how drowned they were, the only
thing I heard from those who sat "in

how good the show was and how they
would pay to see Petty again.

On April 25, Mike Hamrick was
named Director of Athletics at ECU,
filling the final and most significant
Pirate Athletics vacancy after a mass
departmental exodus which left the
program searching for new men's and
women's basketball coaches, as well
as assistant football and basketball
coaches and a shooting guard on the
men's hoops squad.
I think that there is a tremendous
amount of opportunity at ECU)
Hamrick said. "I really believe that
better days are ahead for ECU athlet-
ics
The 37-year-old Hamrick replaces
Dave Hart Jr who left ECU to fill
the same position at Florida State
University in March. Hamrick served
as the Athletic Director at the
Unviersity of Arkansas-Little Rock
from 1990-95. coordinating and man-
aging all aspects of their 16-sport Di-
vision-I athletics program.
Most notably, Hamrick, while at
UALR, placed the Trojans into the
Sun Belt Conference, after they had
been previously turned away twice.
ECU currently finds itself an orphan
in the world of collegiate athletic
conferencing, an enigma still that
ranks high on ECU'S list of priorities.
Before going to UALR, Hamrick
was an Assistant Athletics Director at
Illinois State University from 1984-90.
"I think that we had a tremen-
dous amount of success at Illinois
State and at Arkansas-Little Rock
Hamrick said. "I've had experience
taking programs from one level to the
next and I hope that that experience
will help me as I come into to
Greenville to try to improve the East
Carolina program
The West Virginia native gradu-
ated from Marshall University in 1980
with a B.A. in Education, and was a
two-year starter at linebacker for the
Thundering Herd. He received his
Master's degree in Sports Administra-
tion from Ohio University a year later.
He has a wife and three children.
For the second straight year. ECU
has earned special mention by the
College Football Association in its
yearly survey of graduation rates for
football players.
Along with ECU. 16 other
schools received honorable mentions
for having graduation rates of 70 per-
cent or higher. The CFA average is
58.6 percent
"I told the people at ECU when I
interviewed for the job that I couldn't
promise them anything but I would
work hard, our program would have
integrity and that our student-athletes
would graduate Hamrick said. "I can
promise you that will happen

CAA baseball tourney
underway in Kinston
Dave Pond
Sports Editor
The tension is mounting in the
back office of Scales Field House as
Pirate head baseball coach Gary
Overton prepares his squad for the
CAA Tournament starting today at
Kinston's Grainger Stadium.
The Pirates finished the 1995
regular season with a 29-24 record,
and just 5-13 in the CAA.
"We played a very tough non-con-
ference schedule late in the year
Overton said. "Playing teams like N.C.
State and Georgia Southern at the
end of the year can only make us a
better club
James Madison won the CAA
regular-season crown, and should reap
the benefits of having a first-round bye
in the tournament. According to
Coach Overton however, any team has
a legitimate chance of winning the
tournament
"Prior to the year starting, three
clubs - Madison, Richmond and Old
Dominion felt like they had their best
clubs Overton said. "George Mason
was not expected to have that good
of a club but they came up with some
very fine hitters. Then, one of the
most solid teams in the league is UNC-
Wilington. They have strong pitching
and very strong defense, and win by
those two natures
The young Pirates have struggled
with youth, inexperience and incon-
sistency throughout the 1995 season,
and will face a dangerous righthander
in Bobby St Pierre and the Univer-
sity of Richmond Spiders in today's
opening-round matchup.
"We haven't produced offensively
like we feel that we should have, par-
ticularly in the power element of the
game Overton said. "That's ham-
pered us somewhat but at the same
time, after the injury to Pirate
pitcher Billy Layton, the pitching staff
- particularly the young guys, got in
more innings. Patrick Dunham and
Chad Newton have really come on for
us
Dunham finished his first season
in a Pirate uniform with a 74 record
and a 2.93 earned run average. Oppo-
nents batted just .175 against him,
and 60 were Dunham strikeout vic-
tims. Hewitt went 4-2 with a 3.32 ERA
in 16 games.
As first reported by The East
Carolinian, sophomore basketball
player Skipp Schaefbauer received his
release from his scholarship at ECU
and has decided to transfer to Illinois
State Unviersity to finish his collegiate
career.
Schaefbauer played two seasons
for the Pirates. During his freshman
season, Schaefbauer averaged 6.3
points and 1.8 rebounds per game and
was named to the CAA All- Rookie
Team. Last season, Schaefbauer aver-
aged 11.0 points and 3.7 rebounds
as a sophomore.
He leaves ECU tied for seventh
in school history in three-point per-
centage, and his 42 three pointers last
season were good enough for ninth
place overall. Schaefbauer was named
to the GTE-CoSIDA Academic All-Dis-
trict 3 Team and the CAA All-Aca-
demic Team in 1995. Schaefbauer re-
cently sat down and spoke with TEC
before he headed home to Minnesota.
TEC: What was your main rea-
soning in deciding to transfer?
SS: To get closer to home and to
get closer to my family. Illinois St. has
three games that are even closer to
my home than Illi-
nois St
TEC: Did the
coaching change
have any effect on
your decision?
SS: The coach-
ing change had
nothing to do with
it I believe Coach
Dooley will do a
great job. I think
ECU made the
right decision in
hiring him.
"I'm going to
miss ECU. I
learned a lot from
the coaching staff
and from the
players
� Skipp Schaefbauer
TEC: What was your deciding
factor on choosing Illinois State?
SS: I likeed the coaching staff and
the players. I usu-
ally try to make my
decisions based on
the people I'm go-
ing to be dealing
with, and I felt Illi-
nois State would be
the best place for
me.
TEC: What other schools did you
look at when you decided to trans-
fer?
SS: Illinois State was the only
school I visited. I talked to some other
schools, but when I talked to Illinois
State on the phone I was very im-
pressed, and that was the only visit
that I set up. Most of the schools I
looked at were in the Midwest area.
TEC: How do
you see your role at
Illinois State?
SS; Of course,
I have to set out a
year under NCAA
rules. Their two shooting guard will
be graduating, so I would like to come
in my junior year and start and con-
tribute as much as I can.
TEC: What type of conference is
Illinois State in?
SS: As far as I know, the Missouri
Valley is an excellent conference. They
sent four teams to the postseason last
year. Tulsa, and Southern Illinois went
to the NCAA tournament and Brad-
ley and Illinois State both sent teams
to the National Invitational Tourna-
ment (NIT). It's definetly a strong con-
ference.
TEC: How do you evaluate your
two years here at ECU?
SS: I'm going to miss ECU. I
learned a lot from the coaching staff
and from the players. 1 enjoyed the
university as far as the academic side
of it, I enjoyed the people and I en-
joyed the fans, and that is why it was
a tough decision for me to transfer.
TEC: ECU travels to Illinois Slate
on December 30th to play the Red-
birds. How are you going to feel when
you see your former team?
SS: I'm not sure how it is going
to feel. Of course, I am going to be an
Illinois State player, and when you
transfer, you have to be loyal to your
new team.
TEC: How are you going to
handle leaving your teamates here?
SS: It's going to be tough. I have

1983, was named the Naismith Na-

Edwards takes victory at East
Carolina Motor Speedway
Tom Earnhardt
Staff Writer
Late model stock car racer Danny
Edwards, Jr. from Puquoson, Virginia
collected $4,000 in prize money as he
worked his number 26 Pontiac
Firebird around the 38-mile banked
tri-oval East Carolina Motor Speedway
in Robersonville last Satuiday.
Edwards won the final race of the
evening capturing his second check-
ered flag of the "Pepsi Super Seven
Series" this season.
The Virginia native was never
seriously challenged during the 200-
lap event. He was followed in second
place by his younger brother Greg,
whose number 27 Pontiac bumped
and banged its way to the front.
Local favorite Tommy Cherry,
from South Mills, NC, challenged the
younger Edwards throughout the race
in his number 87 Pontiac. Edwards
and Cherry avoided disaster on sev-
eral occasions, but the younger
Edwards managed to
find his way into sec- �-��
ond during the last
nine laps following a
caution period.
Cherry became
embattled in a two
car duel with the
number 43 Chevrolet
of Chris Perry which
allowed Edwards to
slide inside and pass
his way into second
behind his brother.
Cherry, who finished
fourth, was followed
by Louis White, also in a Pontiac. ECU
student Mike Conover finished the
race in 12th position as his car con-
tinued to be plagued by problems suf-
fered in a crash last week.
Edwards started from the pole
position and took advantage of numer-
ous wrecks and driver errors behind
him to widen his lead throughout the
race. Following
�� each caution pe-
riod, Edwards
would scream
across the start
finish line to as-
sume a command-
ing lead on each
restart The con-
clusion marked
the first time that
the Edwards
brothers have fin-
ished first and sec-
ond.
Prior to the
200-lap finale, fans were treated to
four shorter races which produced
just as much excitement The 40-lap
Budweiser Super Stock race was
claimed by Greenville native John

a game, but it's also a business, and I
think all players understand that now.
TEC: How did Coach Dooley
handle the entire situation?
SS: Coach Dooley handled it re-
ally well. He did not put any pres-
sure on me to stay, he wanted the
best for me, and 1 really appreciate
that from him.
TEC: Do you ever second guess
yourself an your decision?

sion that you make, you have to stick
with it. I had to go with what I
thought was the right thing to do. I
believe this decision will work out for
all parties involved, East Carolina

decision. They have their opinions,

Jarman's number 4 had enough
horsepower to hold off Larry Curry

Tony Jackson that sent them to the
